Pasquale Rotella dropped a lengthy update in regards to EDC Las Vegas and whether it will move to the fall – “The final decision will be made very soon.”

One of the biggest questions on the minds of those who have tickets for EDC Las Vegas or were considering attending this year was if the show would actually take place on their original dates in May. Rumors have swirled from a variety of sources over the past few weeks with a potential date in October being floated, but nothing concrete has been released while Pasquale Rotella has continued to say that the answer would come at a later date.

As the upcoming edition of EDC Las Vegas looms on the horizon with less than two months to go until the originally planned dates (May 21-23), Pasquale Rotella has delivered another update. Tonight he took to his social media dive into some details and shine a light on what has actually been going on with Insomniac’s plans moving forward.

Most importantly, he clarified a specific deadline in which a decision will be made about EDC Las Vegas moving forward. “For our May dates, we’ve submitted a robust safety plan that is currently under review by Nevada officials,” he said in the post. “I will let you know the final decision by April 8th or sooner. If our plan is approved, we will move forward with the May 21-23 dates, and if not, EDC will be moved to October.”

In the statement Pasquale Rotella also addressed those who were concerned about their travel plans, urging them to make sure that there are cancellation policies in place and that their airlines had no change fees. He also directly responded to those who have called for EDCLV to move to October immediately, stating that they “need to consider the Headliners who have struggled through this year and need EDC and the support of our community in their lives.”

Additionally, he made it clear that if EDC Las Vegas moves forward with its originally planned dates in May and attendees don’t feel comfortable heading to Las Vegas, they’ll be able to push their tickets to 2022. If the show is pushed to October and they cannot make those dates, a refund option will be available. International attendees with restrictions may transfer their passes to 2022 without question as well.

Editor’s Note: This article was updated to clarify that refunds would only be granted if the dates were pushed to October.
